Lakefront Brewery is a leader in brewing the best beers in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Specializing in lagers in their formative years, Lakefront has since released the first certified organic beer, gluten-free beer, as well as the first fruit beer since prohibition. A leader in innovation, Lakefront produces a My Turn series in which, four times a year, a Lakefront employee gets to call a beer their own. More recently, Lakefront also started a Brandy Barrel-aged series of brews that release throughout the year. Beer aside, Lakefront is also known around the country for their highly entertaining and sought-after brewery tours. The tour price gets you 4, 6 oz. samples, a souvenir pint glass, and a coupon for Lakefront beer at one of many locations. It's recommended to buy your tickets online ahead of time. If available, tickets can also be bought walking up for the next available tour.

Just did this tour today. Our host was Mikee who has been with Brewery from inception. Be sure to ask for tour he is doing. Hilarious tour. Somewhat on r-rated side. Takes about a hour includes 4 beers.

Fun brewery Tour with a friend! Informative tour guide. Got to taste 4 different beers. Small gift shop. Sat out by the river and enjoyed our beers. The tour was about 45-60 min.

Lakefront Brewery serves a good Friday night Fish Fry, but be prepared for the loud noise. Not the kind of place you want to go to if you have a slight headache ; ) Polka music is apt to be playing. Time it right and...More

We usually visit 2x a month in the winter for awesome food. Haven't been in though since they switched to crinkle cut frozen fries. Prior to this I'm pretty sure the fries were battered and fried served with amazing cheese sauce. Please don't cut corners....More
